Topics: Given this day and age, how does one practice abstinence?

For most people the easiest practice to consistently fulfill will be the traditional one, to abstain from meat on all Fridays of the year. Fasting and abstinence.

it depends on who the guy is, me sure there are times i would want to, but for the most part i could refrain. but as i said it all depends on the guy. then again i could just be strange like that :)

More than half of the 50 United States require abstinence to be taught in sex education as the "best" method of birth control. even though the states that focus on abstinence the most also have the highest teen pregnancy rates. Now, we're not saying that there's anything wrong with abstaining from sex until you're good and ready; kids feeling pressured to get laid right now is it's own problem. It's just that, for some reason, we have real trouble teaching that "true love waits" without getting weird about it.

What do we mean by that? Well, we spoke with a woman who was raised deep in the heart of hardcore Christian "purity" culture, who told us.

As someone who stayed a virgin until she was junior in college, I have a soft spot in my heart for any celeb who roils against the urge to get it on. For me, waiting to go all the way wasn’t about religion or fear of STDs I just wanted it to be special..and frequent! And alas, that didn’t happen until I was 21. But no two virgins not even famous virgins are alike, girls.

A few years ago, Nick, Kevin and Joe couldn’t talk enough about their commitment to their purity rings. Kev got hitched to his long time GF (presumably without going all the way first) but girl-crazy Joe and Nick, who’s new girl Delta Goodrem is 25, have been suspiciously quite about their infamous virginity lately. Do you think they’ve given in to temptation?

Back before she sold super sexy shoes and clothes, Jessica Simpson was the ultimate good girl, vowing to stay pure until she said “I Do” to long term boyfriend, Nick Lachey only to divorce him a few years later. If virginity is a gift, let’s hope she kept the receipt.

Members of the  Reddit community abstain from watching pornography and masturbating for periods of time. Some see “rebooting” or “fapstinence” as a quick test of self-control, while others use it as an attempt to treat porn addictions they claim have rendered them unable to become aroused by “real life” sex.

In a heartfelt post, Reddit user Brohit wrote that he quit masturbating two and a half years ago, and felt his mind has become clearer and that he “was at peace more often.” 

He said he felt “superpowers” including a sudden increase in confidence, laser sharp focus, and energy boosts. But added: “How do we know these superpowers aren’t just normal human tendencies?”

It is a traditional doctrine of Christian spirituality that a constituent part of repentance, of turning away from sin and back to God, includes some form of penance, without which the Christian is unlikely to remain on the narrow path and be saved (Jer. 18:11, 25:5; Ez. 18:30, 33:11-15; Joel 2:12; Mt. 3:2; Mt. 4:17; Acts 2:38). Christ Himself said that His disciples would fast once He had departed (Lk. 5:35). The general law of penance, therefore, is part of the law of God for man.

The Church for her part has specified certain forms of penance, both to ensure that the Catholic will do something, as required by divine law, while making it easy for Catholics to fulfill the obligation. Thus, the 1983 Code of Canon Law specifies the obligations of Latin Rite Catholics [Eastern Rite Catholics have their own penitential practices as specified by the Code of Canons for the Eastern Churches].

The Church, therefore, has two forms of official penitential practices - three if the Eucharistic fast of one hour before Communion is included.

A side hug is a display of affection in which a person hugs another by putting one arm around their shoulders, rather than both arms around them. [1] This can be useful for example when posing for a photograph, or if an ordinary hug for some reason is considered too intimate for the situation. [2] [3]

Public displays of physical intimacy between intimate partners in romantic relationships are discouraged by many religious organisations that seek to discourage sexual intimacy. Brio magazine (published by Focus on the Family ) advised readers to refrain from front hugging members of the opposite sex in 2007. [4]

A rap song was performed by Ryan Pann as a skit at the 2009 Encounter Generation (EG) evangelical youth conference, hosted by The Fathers House church in Vacaville, California. [5] A video of this became a YouTube meme in 2009 and was remarked on by such blogs as Feministe [6] and Feministing [7] and from there the mainstream press. [8] The song's lyrics include such phrases as "This ain’t no front hug zone" and "Jesus never hugged nobody like that."

Sexuality has been more than emphasized in today's society. TV, radio, Internet, books, magazines and media in general. Practicing abstinence can be difficult. By staying focused, talking to romantic partners, and finding healthy ways to cope with sexual urges you can successfully practice abstinence.

Yes it s still attractive. Just go on a date with someone you like.and if they are really truly good pure people, then they will understand. I mean.if you tell them you want to wait and they get pissed then most likely they just are getting in it for sex. At least you know you won t be getting used because once you tell them and they leave you saved urself some heartache. :P Oh. and.i give you props for saving it for your wife. =] your a very good person. Wish there were more like ya.
